Ohhhh what a great word: schifaiku. I love that!
Wendy, just a heads up that I have moved my blog address to a cheaper, more migraine-friendly address. You are very welcome to join me there. I will do my utmost to get back here and support you as often as I can. I will certainly continue to share through Triberr.
Have an awesome week.
I’ll seek you out and refollow you, Cate. I always enjoy seeing your blog. We’ll still be tribemates on triberr I’m sure. 🙂
Indeed we will. I greatly appreciate your shares.
I’m really getting into Scifaiku, or “science fiction haiku”. I took a workshop on how to do it at a convention last year and continue to write it. I find it relaxing, both the writing of the poetry and the illustration sketches. 🙂
It’s the first time I have heard of it. 🙂
It is not well known, even in science fiction writing circles. However, there are magazines that specialize in it and you’ll find references to Scifaiku going back for many years. I’m glad I stumbled on it last year. 🙂
Want to do a guest post on it, for April? (National Poetry Writing Month) You are very welcome. Guest post guidelines are here: http://www.cateartios.net/guestguide.html Ignore the theme.
Oh, that would be quite nice. I’d love to. We’ll chat more about it via email. 🙂
